My husband's dad came to Canada when he was two years old. His parents name: Christopher (Chris) Fenske, born about 1896 and Emily Bulens born about 1900. I believe both were born in Horredish, Russia. They were married Feb 29, 1919 in Isendorf, Germany. They lived in Germany until 1927 when they immigrated to Canada, Morris, Manitoba. The following year they settled on a farm in Saskatchewan in the Great Deer district, west of the Clear Spring School. They had six children; Arnold b.1921,Erma b.1922, Goerge(Gothart) b. 1926, Elsie b. 1929, Erica b.1933, Walter b.1938. Chris passed away Nov. 15, 1971. I believe Arnold stayed in Germany. He was born in Rause, Germany.
I thikn that Chris was a memeber of a combined family where there were anywhere from 9-17 children?
Any info anyone has would be great.
